is any name the same if it’s spelt differently?

like when people say “oh your name means this”. mate don’t tell me what my name means! It’s just a dumb name my parents gave me.

yeah, that’s true and I get that but it feels like a weird distinction to me in a way.

strange that you end up with one name with such power and identity to it when it’s just something your parents thought up in an idle moment

do you think anyone has ever changed their name to a melodic phrase?

I would like that.

Never knew that, so they all have the same root/correspond to each other except for Eoin?

Every day’s a school day, huh

could you end up with two different names with different roots that are actually spelt and pronounced the same?

kind of like how evolution can end up at the same place with no common ancestor

I guess so, can have that with words so no reason why not with names

woah, what words?
